I apologize for not posting lately. I have been busy creating an outfit for an amazing fashion competition I got into through school. It is called Junior League.
Only 5 people from my level were chosen to compete based on their initial garments. I am proud to say I am one of the five! The theme of the second half was fairy tales. I picked Aladdin from a hat, which I was super excited about! I have loved the movie Aladdin since I was young. I especially loved princess Jasmine. For my design, I wanted to bring a more fashion forward, trendy look to my design. I took inspiration from the magic carpet and the colors she wore. I ended up designing a sleeveless pleated top with a pleated neckline with a cream and gold patterned wide leg pant. As well as a teal train with a hand sewn/beaded design. An I am extremely happy and proud of the way it turned out.
Tomorrow 03/25 I have my dress rehearsal to practice how things will run and how we will walk down the runway. We will be getting judged tomorrow as well. Our actual show is on April 1st. I am so excited! I have jumped through so many hurdles to get this outfit done. I am so proud of myself. I have never done anything like this in my life and it is such a huge opportunity. I am thankful to be a part of this!
